SPEAK MANDARIN, A BEGINNING TEXT IN SPOKEN CHINESE.
FENN, HENRY C.; TEWKSBURY, M. GARDNER
THIS TEXT IS A THOROUGH REVISION AND EXPANSION OF M. GARDNER TEWKSBURY'S "SPEAK CHINESE" OF 1948. THE 24 LESSONS OF THE EARLIER TEXT HAVE BEEN REGROUPED INTO 20 AND THE VOCABULARY NOW INCLUDES 850 ITEMS. WHEN USED WITH THE EXERCISES IN THE ACCOMPANYING "STUDENT'S WORKBOOK" THE TEXT IS SUITABLE FOR INTENSIVE COURSES AS WELL AS MORE CONVENTIONAL COURSES. THE LESSONS IN THIS VOLUME CONSIST OF--(1) A DIALOGUE OR NARRATIVE WHICH PRESENTS VOCABULARY AND PATTERNS IN NATURAL, EVERYDAY SITUATIONS, (2) A VOCABULARY LISTING OF NEW ITEMS WITH THEIR ENGLISH GLOSS AND IN THE CONTEXT OF SENTENCES, AND (3) SENTENCE PATTERNS AND NOTES WHICH ARE INTRODUCED IN AN ORDER "DEVELOPED OUT OF CLASSROOM EXPERIENCE RATHER THAN FROM LINGUISTIC THEORY." IN ORDER TO ENCOURAGE AURAL-ORAL PROFICIENCY, ALL CHINESE MATERIAL IS TRANSCRIBED IN YALE ROMANIZATION. "READ CHINESE, BOOK I" (YALE LINGUISTIC SERIES) MAY BE USED TO TEACH READING AFTER THE STUDENT HAS MASTERED THE VOCABULARY IN THE FIRST HALF OF THIS TEXT. ALONG WITH THE "STUDENT'S WORKBOOK" AND A "TEACHER'S MANUAL," THIS 238-PAGE TEXT IS AVAILABLE FROM THE PUBLISHER, THE YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS, 149 YORK STREET, NEW HAVEN, CONNECTICUT 06511, FOR $2.75.
